How to optimize Gifs

I am making gifs for my blog, which is 30sec duration. But coming to its size it is very large up to 5MB. How to optimize them? Is there any tool?
I’m making gifs with camtasia.

EZGif is your best friend for this.

You can reduce the number of frames. Crop the size and also other tools are available to bring the size down.

Alternatively, use 3rd party image hosting service (like imgbb, imgur)



Yes I tried this but lost quality when resize

Try ShareX

Use MP4 format: better quality and lower file size

Gif impact site performance, they do run in a loop unless you customize. Better make a video (event it is short), upload it to YouTube and embed the code. There is a lot difference between running code and gif.
